Amanda Knox's time in the courtroom has not ended, but this time she will be a witness in a defamation case against her parents.

Knox is the only witness expected to defend her parents, Curt Knox and Edda Mellas, who are charged with defaming five police officers with the Perugia crime squad, according to ABC News.

Knox's parents repeated Knox's version of events involving her arrest, trial and jail time in the murder case of Meredith Kercher to a British newspaper in June 2008, including the details of the interrogation.

Amanda told her parents that she was physically and verbally abused by police officers, Dalla Vedova, Knox's attorney, told ABC News. She said she was never given food or water, or an interpreter. She also said she was threatened that 'things would get worse' if she asked for a lawyer to be present.

The police officers feel those comments offended their reputation.

A hearing was scheduled for today but was postponed because some witnesses were not present. It is now scheduled for Jan. 24, 2013.

They will be acquitted because what they said is true, Dalla Vedova told ABC News.

During closing arguments in Knox's 2011 appeal trial, prosecutor Giuliano Mignini conceded that 'it is possible that Knox was hit in the head by mistake' during her interrogation.

Amanda will probably not come back to Italy, Dalla Vedova told ABC News. If she has to testify, she will probably do so via video conference, which is allowed.

Knox has resumed classes at the University of Washington and has signed a nearly $4 million dollar book deal with Harper Collins.
